The original story is below.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare launches on November 4, but you don't have to wait that long to try out Activision's newest entry in the juggernaut shooter series.
As announced previously, the first stage of the game's multiplayer beta kicks off today, October 14, on PlayStation 4. The beta is only available for people who preordered the game on Sony's system, either at retail or through the PlayStation Store. Pre-loading started earlier this week, while the servers will go live at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, according to an FAQ on Activision's website.
The PS4 beta ends on October 17 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. The following weekend's beta will be held on PS4 and Xbox One, running October 21 to October 24 at the same times. The Infinite Warfare beta will not be offered on PC.
In terms of content, the Infinite Warfare beta includes access to three of the game's Combat Rigs and a limited selection of modes and maps. A complete outline on what the beta consists of is available here. Check out the video above to see some of the beta's content in action.
For last year's Call of Duty: Black Ops III multiplayer beta, Activision eventually opened it up to all users, regardless of preorder status. It remains to be seen if that will be the case for Infinite Warfare.
Infinite Warfare launches on November 4 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Premium versions of the game come with a Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare remaster, which includes the campaign and multiplayer. People who preordered on PS4 can play the Modern Warfare Remastered campaign right now.
